Around 40 pensioners meet at United Church on Croft Road every Wednesday to socialise over a hot meal. However in the New Year the Lunch Club could be forced to run only on alternatives weeks if additional helpers are not found for the kitchen.
The Lunch Club, which is in its 21st year, is looking for volunteers to help shop for ingredients, prepare vegetables and cook. Up until Christmas, Sheila who used to run the Bricklayers Arms, has kindly agreed to cook every Wednesday to keep the Lunch Club going. However in January, it will be forced to only open twice a month if additional cooks are not found. The club is social lifeline for many of the elderly people who attend.
There is plenty of help and support available. There is a committee of members that meet up every 6-weeks or so to discuss meal ideas and plan recipes.
If anyone is interested and would like further details of what involved please ring Mrs Maynard on 01892 662524.
